Overview

The stories in Bob Reed's delightful book are surefire spirit lifters that celebrate life and enrich the soul. Reed's seven tales not only come alive with hilarity and warmth, they show how God works through even the most bumbling and misdirected human efforts. Reed's humor is laced with insight, his descriptions with inspiration, and his characters with God's own love. In the lead story, "The Choir That Couldn't Sing," Reed's description of a hopelessly off-key church choir assembled from eccentrics and misfits will trigger gales of laughter. But tears are sure to flow when readers feel the impact of the choir's humble but grand, accomplishment. The book's other stories come equally alive with humor, insight, and inspiration that demonstrate how the least in the kingdom of heaven can touch the heart of God.

    High praise for Bob Reed

    If, like me, you enjoy humorous books full of witty one-liners, this book is for you. It is composed of deaf people who couldn't hear music or sing...they deliver the words in sign language! There are many 'odd balls' in the choir but the author Bob Reed, is never hard on them. One member of the church, but not the choir, a dentist, belongs to the 'Society of Organized Dentists.' Bob asks: 'What sort of people are 'disorganized dentists' and how do their clients fare? A lady learned when she was a girl that Cinderella married on the 'up' so she waited over 40 years for her chance to wed and ended up with the 'organized dentist.' In one story there is the 'He ain't here pool hall' where men go to 'escape.' In another a Baptist gets involved in a Biblical quotation battle with a Samoan chief. Each of the seven stories is very funny. Many incicidents remind me of three of my favourite writers, O'Henry, Mark Twain and Bill Bryson. I cannot give the author higher praise than that. Finally I wonder if Bob is having a joke with readers. On the back cover it reads 'To learn more about Bob see page 215.' When I went to read page 215 I found the book ended on page 214. Nice one Bob!
